to subprime mortgage crisis, the washington post reports that obama administration pushing banks to give out more home loans to people with weaker credit. did not one of them pay attention to what happened? do they not study history? doe they not understand anything? the reasoning? the housing rebound has left too many people behind. this sounds a little bit, just a little bit like well president clinton. like president bush. gosh, i want inch to have money to buy a housebut they don't. it's hard to disagree with the sentiment. but we've seen what happens when people think in terms of sentiment rather than solution. the market is improves. but here is another view on houses right now. 28% of all homeowners, in this country are still owing more than their homes are worth. the mortgage delinquency rate, on all loans is 7.4%. that is better than what it had been over 10%. just two years ago. but it is still not good. and more than 1.8 million properties in this country received foreclosure filings last year, 1.48 million remain in some stage of foreclosure. and president obama, folks -- i don'

at an age when the obama derangement syndrome runs washington. >> and the age when public opinion doesn't matter. i dispute the idea that momentum is gone. you see a poll every once in a while that indicates that in general terms. but if you look at the specific measures, do you support background checks, do you support ban on assault weapons. do you support ban on extended magazines? these things all win majorities. background checks wins, the last i checked the majority is around 90% and it hasn't dropped. >> the senators who are seen as the most obstructionist on this issue, even in their states, arkansas, 84% support background checks. louisiana, 85%, where mary landrieu is being chicken on the issue. montana, 79%. >> i have to read, this is one of my favorite columns, the economist wrote about america's gun divide, they wrote the truth is that gun control is going nowhere. one reason is that the millions of americans in favor of gun control do not live in the right places. support for gun control is geographically and racially concentrated in ways that sap the momentum of political

'm very hopeful that we can get this passed. >> dana milbank writes in "the washington post". obama on guns too little too late. on almost every topic from budget negotiations to national security, washington seems only to act these days in response to crisis if it acts at all. obama errored in trying to use newtown to build support for his positions on taxes and energy and immigration and he compounded the error by sending j joe biden to conduct a study. once the president took his foot off the accelerator no other action not even michael bloomberg's ad campaign to maintain the momentum. mark kelly has been, obviously, outspoken advocate on gun control legislation and he has been going around and buying guns and showing how long it takes to fill out a background check. i think it was like five minutes and 36 seconds, just if you care. if you can wait five minutes and 36 seconds for your gun. >> so i'm hearing behind the scenes there is still a deal that is being worked on universal background checks but yesterday it sound like it might be dead. >> they are still trying to figure ou

under the new law. in washington, d.c. at the federal level, president obama has just established a bipartisan commission to try to fix what has gone so wrong with the basic running of the elections in this country, but in the states where they're actually making policy on these matters, already this year we have seen 55 measures introduced to make voting harder. not easier, harder, in 30 states. it's as if republicans in state legislatures looked at the debacle of 2012, the stay in line election and lawsuits over new requirements for voting and couldn't wait to order a second helping for that. today, arkansas republicans finished passing laws to make voting harder, a democrat governor vetoed the bill, but they overrided it, so it will be much harder to vote in the great state of arkansas. ige virginia, there was not even that last barrier of a governor. lawmakers passed their voter i.d. bill, and bob mcdonnell signed it, and that was it, let's make it harder. joining us now is a virginia state senator, and an opponent of virginia's new law. senator, thank you so much for being wi
